I choose to feature the mocking jay on my
cover because I feel that it symbolizes rebellion and
equality throughout the 12 districts. Rebellion
because the mocking jay inspires people to not
follow the rules and instead, to do what is right. This

Games. Equality because the poorest of the poor

meets up with her mentor Haymitch. He informs her of the
plan of defying the president and rescuing all the victors. She
gets very amgry because no one told her, and she can’t find
Peeta. Then she finds her best friend, Gale. He tells her that
her family is safe, but her home, District 12, has been
